Cut cheese bovine milk, Appearance: floral rind - nut-coloured - chalky coloured interior, Aroma: mushrooms - cellars, Flavour: sourish - full-bodied - persistent, Consistency: creamy - chalky structure, Maturation: 3 months in the natural cave
Has a deep ruby red colour with a violet rim when young. The nose is clean, fruity with hints of raspberry and woodland fruits. As it ages, it opens up and mellows. On the palate it reveals balanced tannins, accompanied by a full, persistent body. It is dry, distinct, full-bodied and austere.
Hard cheese goat milk and ewe's milk, Appearance: grooved brown rind, Aroma: mediterranean pasture, Flavour: intensive - easily salty, Consistency: hard and compact, Maturation: 6 months
A hard cheese that is left to age for about a year and a half. The wheels are then wrapped in chestnut leaves which transform them and enrich them with a strong, exceptional flavour. It pairs well with great Langa wines but is ideal with important dark craft beer too.
